Thuringowa Central is a suburb of Townsville in the City of Townsville, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census Thuringowa Central had a population of 2,023 people.


When Thuringowa was a city most visitors did not know the location of the city's centre, so in 2004 the Thuringowa city Mayor developed the city centre masterplan to complement the Riverway project.
